Rally Day at church, for which I had made those six batches of caramel corn, turned out well. Good attendance. The weather was nice, but I did get hot by the time I had circulated with baskets of the bagged corn and visited with numerous guests. I had an egg roll made by our Vietnamese congregation and a watermelon wedge offered at the evangelism & membership table. It was now close to noon, the bags of caramel corn had all been dispensed, and my face had begun to melt, so I went home.
Being a warm Sunday (the temperature rose to 99 degrees), I sat on the couch, with air conditioner and air purifier running, and vegged out all afternoon. Journal writing, social media, library book reading. I realized, late afternoon, that I had only eaten those Rally Day treats all day so I was getting hungry. However, I wasn’t in the mood to cook much. Fortunately there was a lasagna in the freezer, spinach in the fridge, and a baguette of fresh bread. It all turned into an easy, tasty dinner, with the emphasis on easy. Then a lime popsicle for dessert while we watched a Vera episode.
It was a pleasant, successful Sunday. Good start to a new week. Another busy week. More storytelling sessions. Grocery shopping is imperative. Writing an agenda for a deacon’s meeting next Sunday. Because, you know, next Sunday will be here in a blink of the eye.
